Seat Sale 101
thelonelytravelwhore: A lot of anons have been asking me about seat sales. Here are some of the things to remember (most of these only apply to Cebu Pacific): 1. They never last for too long. Cebu Pacific does a maximum of 3 (sometimes up to 5) seat sale dates (as far as I have observed). So now you know when to regularly check their websites. 2. Always check their websites after 12...

TGR x Edric Chen
I was planning on featuring a roster of photographers for TGR, and it excited me when I heard from the first one I contacted via email, with a brilliant tradeoff suggestion. How would I like to arrange a photoshoot with a model of his choice in exchange for a day’s worth of experience more valuable than a thousand words transferred on a virtual thread? Very. I first heard of Edric from my...

DIY Iced Coffee: Summer Sans the Heat
As the caffeine panda here at The Girls’ Room, it doesn’t matter when and what season we’re in, I have got to have coffee at least a couple of days in a week. So whenever the weather’s too hot for my regular Joe, I opt for the colder version. Especially now that the heat is indescribably searing (hot potato!), iced coffee will always be a better choice. But at the rate ice...
Illustrator Profile: RJ Santos
I met RJ from a film org we joined at the same time about two years ago, and I’ve come to follow his works, both as a Clothing Tech student and as a fashion illustrator. When sketching, he works with music in the background, always. For him, sketching relieves stress, even if it meant staying up at night til before the sun rises, and even if he can’t finish what he started - which he...

Shoes can actually be one of the most critical elements of an outfit; it can make or break your outfit, and I learned this the hard way. I used to care less about shoes! I can go to school everyday wearing the same pair of flats. I used to go to debut parties borrowing shoes from my sister or from my mom without even thinking if these would match my dresses! I have slowly developed an attachment...
